132 Charles Street. . . .
Of course, I knew I would love the garden behind this house right away. . .
131/137 Charles Street. . . .
74 Charles Street is the Charles Inn B&B. . . .
. . . to an open area bordered with large areas of plantings. . . .
. . .that lead you around to this path. . . .
114 Market Street was a quiet haven. . . .
86 Market Street's garden was very narrow and long. . . .
83 Market Street has a glimpse of the water from the front walk. . . .
Around back is a private serene setting. . . .
100 Market Street's garden was a narrow bricked side yard that led to a deck in the back. . . .
The Upton Scott House, 4 Shipwright Street. . . .
There was no garden to speak of in the large back yard, but this door in the garden wall leads one's imagination to its own making. . . .
4 Revell Street took advantage of the neighbor's white picket fence to lend it some charm. . . .
5 Revell Street's garden is reached from a common area in the back of the house. . . .
After climbing the steps to the terrace you can catch a glimpse of their water view between the trees. . . .
3 Revell Street's garden is the same, only they are even higher up. . . .
7 Shipwright Harbor was entered from a long side walkway. . . .
The Rideout House, 120 Duke of Gloucester Street had a large formal garden. . . .
